How to Make Common Yarrow Tea – Easy Outdoors Drinks

How to make tea from common yarrow – enhance your wilderness survival skills by learning to make teas from nature.

Making tea from common yarrow, has been a tradition in many regions of the world for a long time because they contain a lot of vitamins, minerals and other ingredients that are good for your health.
Achillea millefolium, commonly known as yarrow or common yarrow, is native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere in Asia and Europe and North America.

Yarrow leaves have a delicate grassy flavour, with a slight aniseed taste. This makes them useful for brewing as a tea, and they make one of the most pleasant herbal teas. They are abundant in grassland and so can easily be foraged; the leaves are useful in salad, chopped in cooking as a herb, and steeped in hot water for a tea.

Common yarrow tea is made from a spoonful of dried (or a small handful of fresh) herb over which a cup of boiling water is poured. It is then left to infuse for 10 minutes after which it is consumed. Common yarrow tea is effective against colds. Still, it may be wise not to consume the tea too often for a longer period of time.

Oore telkimisala Valgamaal

Mõnus ja hubane Oore telkimisala asub Haanja-Karula puhkealal Aheru järve ääres. Tegelikult on see endine metsavahikoht, Oore talu. Täiuslik talukompleks – rehielamu, ait, laut ja suitsusaun. Mõnedes hoonetes on magamisnarid sees ja neid saab kasutada. Kõik vajalik mõnusa puhkuse nautimiseks.

Vaheldusrikka maastiku ja bioloogilise mitmekesisusega puhkeala hõlmab Haanja, Karula ja Korneti kõrgustike vahelist piirkonda. Kupliline ning jõgede-järvederohke maastik on ideaalne mitmekesiseks puhkuseks – siin on loodud head võimalused jalgsi või jalgrattaga matkamiseks, veeseiklusteks, kalastamiseks, pikniku pidamiseks või loodusvaatluseks.

Kui sulle meeldib olla loodusega koos, siis võta ette üks mõnus looduspuhkus. Matkamine Eesti metsades, ujumine rabajärvedes, loomade ja lindude vaatlemine on siin kõik lihtsasti tehtavad. Eestis looduses on palju puutumatuid kohti. Kolm neljandikku territooriumist on kaetud metsade ja rabadega. Looduslikku mitmekesisust rõhutavad mitte neli, vaid viis aastaaega. Kui sinu idee täiuslikust puhkusest hõlmab matkamist läbi rahvusparkide ja looduskaitsealade ning tähtede all magamist, siis loodus Eestis pakub selleks ohtralt erinevaid võimalusi. Telkimine, matkamine, rändamine, seiklemine – paki oma seljakott kokku ja asu teele.

Kui sa tahad rohkem teada, kuidas lõkkel süüa teha või huvitavad ka söödavad metsikud taimed, kalapüük ning üleelamisõpetused, matkamisest, matkavarustusest ja loodusega koos olemisest rääkimata, siis vaata meie kanalit. Seal leiavad käsitlemist ka mitmed erinevad RMK matkarajad, RMK lõkkekohad ja RMK matkateed.
